Pine Mountain trip highlights Appalachian history and culture

During the week of April 9, seventh graders traveled to the Pine Mountain Settlement School in eastern Kentucky. The trip explores the history, geography, and culture of Appalachia. Students spend the week studying the ecology of the area and learning about the history and environmental impact of coal mining. This is an annual trip that fosters student bonding, and also sets aside time for students to journal their thoughts and observations throughout the week.
